Just my running, my running sucks!
Not sure what's going on??!
I was doing very well for awhile, like during the past 8wks. of training for my 10K. Well the last week wasn't great as I got off track during Christmas.
The problem is that my past few runs including the 10k I ran, I had to take walk breaks, short ones, but I haven't had to do that in over two months.
I feel like I'm regressing. Today is a beautiful sunny day and I was looking forward to going out in the sun for a change, and out I went. The first twenty minutes was actually going quite well and then, hmmm-m-m not sure what's happening. I tried to really think about what I was feeling and why I felt like stopping.
Breathing felt good, nothing was hurting or feeling uncomfortable, but my legs feel like cement blocks on my past few runs and it feels hard to lift them up to put one in front of the other.
I've been trying to make sure I fuel properly. Not sure what's going on. One foot forward, two steps back. I don't think it's necessary a mental thing, because I do feel like going out to run, however my confidence is a little shaky because I'm not sure how things will go once I'm out there.
I've had it happen before where I've had 3-4 'bad' runs in row.
Glad I got out there anyway, it was still better than not getting any activity in. I only did 3k but that is partially because my time window was running out. I didn't walk a lot, just maybe 3 -10 second breaks, but still!
A couple of weeks ago I ran 11k and it felt great! And I did 10k the week before that and no problem as far as feeling like I needed to walk.
Although I'm slow, my pace has actually picked up in the past 8 wks. I don't feel like I'm running too fast, as my breathing is fine, but, hmm. not sure what to think
I got out there and moved!!!!
The sun is shining!!!
I got to sleep in!!
I woke up to dog poo on the floor and carpet :(
(not because I slept in, R had let her out)
something's up with my running
